I cannot recommend Alex and his family highly enough. This was my first experience renting a room (as opposed to the whole apartment) and I was very pleased to have stayed here. I was upgraded to a bigger room with a great bathroom (heated floors are a great touch...), a super-comfy bed and a workspace that is much better than most hotels, which was great because I was in SF for business.
The house in the Twin Peaks neighborhood, which I loved. It is quiet and leafy, on top of one of SF's big hills with great views all round but at the same time not too far from downtown and other areas. I had a car and I could easily park outside the house, no small feat in SF, believe me.
Alex, his wife and their son Anthony were a a delight. Friendly, welcoming and very very hospitable. We had dinner together the first night, with great conversation and delicious food. They prepared a really nice breakfast every day.
In short, a great experience, I fully recommend it.
Wir haben uns vom ersten Moment an sehr willkommen gefühlt. Alex und seine Familie haben uns herzlich empfangen und während des gesamten Aufenthalts dafür gesorgt, dass es uns an absolut nichts fehlt. Unsere Erwartungen wurden weit übertroffen. Wir werden diese Unterkunft auf jeden Fall erneut buchen, wenn wir wieder in San Francisco sind.
Alex's home was wonderful and warm. They upgraded me to a larger room at no extra cost when I reached his home. Also their home is in a very nice neighborhood. Alex and his family were warm and caring host. I would enjoy staying at their place again and I highly recommend his home for future stay.
Alex and his family do everything to welcome you and make you feel home right from the beginning. The room and bath are very quiet and comfortable. I enjoyed my stay and would love to come back and stay with them again.
I loved the detail of the slightly heated tiles in the bathroom - very nice. Also the separate entrance helped to feel very comfortable.
Alex is welcoming and easy going. If you want some privacy you will get it here. The room is clean and in a quiet neighborhood
Alex, Satoko, and Anthony were fantastic hosts! Their home was easy to find and is located in a quiet, safe neighborhood. Parking is readily available. I felt immediately welcomed and I had a wonderful conversation with them over dinner. The room was clean, cozy, and complete with fresh flowers. The bed is luxuriously comfortable. I was in town for interviews, and they were very supportive but also respectful of my privacy. Overall, I had an amazing stay and would return if I'm back in town.
This was my second time staying with Alex and his family. There are lots of things to like about this room. Fresh flowers, the room is tidied up every day, clean towels, sparkling water, and snacks. Alex is also very responsive to any issue that might come up. Thanks for an excellent stay!
